I am lost about your reasoning and its relation to what I said. It's as if you talk to many other people even though reply to me. I haven't made any assumptions about whether it's going to be conventional DSLR, mirrorless, hybrid, modular or anything else. You implied that the OP doesn't determine whether new 43 product will even be a camera, or some kind of a side product, like a flash:

This does not say there will be another dslr 4/3 body. "develop and enhance" can mean nothing more than continuing to add partner companies, and coming out with products that can be used on existing 4/3 dslrs. (such as the FL-600R Flash).

I pointed out to clear indication that it's a camera they have in mind. Can you just nod to that? I've been here long enough to remember the hilarious speculations and ensuing howl of disappointment about E-5 - do you see anything of that in what I say?

Well, actually, I responded to mapgraph's post about "corporate speak". I was plainly referring to the OP linked quote, which was vague. That's about it. You took it to the next step with the slide proving that a slide shows an E camera is planned.

There was a slide that showed a 150 macro was planned as well.

I'll wait until I see the camera, rather than speculate hilariously about what the next E camera might be. I watched Nikon and Olympus both make a joke out of their nomenclature (Nikon EM, or FG, after Nikon had spent over a decade adamantly declaring that only a pro grade camera was worthy of the "Nikon" nameplate and "F" designation. I still cringe at the thought of the Olympus OM-10...)

And yes, my posts are intended to address things beyond what just you say. I keep in mind that thousands of people may read any of my posts, not just you. This is not a private chat room, but a public forum

Some people operate cameras. Others use them to create images. There is a difference.
